In 1985, one of the hottest bands on the Christian Music Scene was Bash
‘n the Code. I remember the first time I saw them in concert at
Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium: the high energy show, the great,
tight music, the bright colors and and innovative choreography, and the
sheer FUN of the performance.
When I was offered the chance to work with
the band one year later as a booking agent, I jumped at the opportunity.
Working out of the band’s house in Antioch, I had the unique
opportunity of getting to know each band member personally and formed
relationships that have endured for 15 years with Keith Lancaster, Mark
Townsend, Kirk Eberhard and with Chris and Jamie Kearney, the talented
drummer and lead vocalist for Bash.
Recently, Chris and Jamie have taken up their instruments again and are
now performing simply as Chris and Jamie Kearney. They live in
Nashville, TN, with their children Isabella and Isaiah.
Together Jamie and Chris have been involved in christian music for most
of their professional lives. In 1981 Chris joined the contemporary
Christian band Bash-N-the Code where he continued until 1991.
Jamie joined as the band’s diminutive, high-energy lead singer, and they
spent the first five years of their marriage on the road together.
After leaving the band, both Jamie and Chris stayed involved in
Christian music.Chris played drums and percussion both on the road and
in the studio, working with such noteworthies as: Steve Taylor, Kerry
Livgren, Steve and Annie Chapman, The Christ Church Choir, and Jonathon
Jamie used her visual gifts to create wardrobes for stage and
album cover photo shoots and has “dressed” Michael W. Smith, CeCe
Winans, Steve Green, Clay Crosse, Margaret Becker, Avalon and many
Working with such a wonderfully eclectic assortment of artist, and
encouraged by the love and teaching of their pastors and friends, Jamie
and Chris continued to develop in the diverse ways God uses and molds
During the last four years, Chris has been working as a drummer with
the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The excellence and integrity
in which the BGEA ministers to its team members and families, as well as
the crusade congregation, has been a gift and inspiration to the
Kearneys. It is to this excellence to which Jamie and Chris aspire, and
it is with thankful hearts that they hope to bring their music,
ministry, family, and themselves to you.
“In moments like these as I sit in my hammock under a one hundred year
old tree with a gentle breeze blowing and I watch our children giggle
and splash in the kiddie pool, I know God is good,” states Jamie.
love and grace has embraced our lives so that even on the days that are
less peaceful than today’s bliss, He gives us the strength to have joy.”
Continuing the thought, Jamie says about their project, “The music on
The Color of Light is our reflection on how we have found and maintain
that joy. The music was not written or even recorded all at one time as
a project with a theme but as I look back over it even today, I see it
as a journey. We are all on life’s journey, and there are as many paths
as there are people. What remains the same is God. Whatever path we are
on, He will meet us and guide us through. It is His desire for us to
experience His way of life, The Color of Light.”
To walk daily with the Lord
To worship and lead others to worship
To reflect truth to the world
To lift up the family as the core of the church community and society
To create irresistibly beautiful music reflecting
Contemporary culture in an authentic and intensely personal way
